A taste of the Dolomites
Whether it’s morning, afternoon or evening, there’s always something boiling in the kitchen of the Averau Mountain Hut with Sandrone and Paola at the stove. The delicate “Cappelli d’Alpino”, the “Cialsons” and the aromatic pheasant and broccoli timbale are some of the delights created by the encounter of the Ampezzo tradition with the tradition of the Friuli region.
The authenticity of our typical dishes, cooked with the greatest care, can only find a perfect match in the wine list selected by Matteo, house sommelier.
